Ianniello To Talk Shop At Deutsche Bank Conference


PALM BEACH, FLA. — Former chief executive Les Mooves is gone. So is former CFO Lawrence Tu. That could make a March 12 appearance by the President and acting CEO of CBS Corp. at the Deutsche Bank 2019 Media, Internet & Telecom Conference far more interesting than in previous years.

Joseph Ianniello will participate in a Q&A session at the event, scheduled for March 12 at 8am at The Breakers Palm Beach, the toniest lodging available in what many may consider “Bel-Air on the Beach.”

No further details were given regarding the session.

The announcement comes as CBS shares are barely treading water above the $50 mark; analysts pegged CBS stock to be a $60 value, with a 1 year target price set at $61.81.

CBS shares have failed to rebound past $54 since late November, when a $43.41 dip was logged on Christmas Eve; CBS, along with other TV companies, recorded end-of-year lows due to market forces and concerns tied to President Trump’s criticism of the press.
